    Here's the 2010 tour dates I've found so far:

    March

    17 - SXSW - Austin, TX (And I'm guessing they'll do more shows during this festival, right?)

    24 - The National - Richmond, VA

    26 - Radio City Music Hall - New York, NY

    27 - House of Blues - Boston, MA

    April

    5 - Ogden Theatre - Denver, CO
    6 - Ogden Theatre - Denver, CO

    13 - Fox Theater - Oakland, CA

    It looks like most of these dates are going on sale this week or this weekend. Woohoo!

    Oh shit, nevermind, there's a big old list on the front page of Spoon's site!

    And presale at Spoon's Musictoday site TOMORROW at 10! http://spoontheband.tickets.musictoday.com/Spoon/calendar.aspx

    $40.50 per ticket? I would totally spend that and much more to see them, but that still seems pretty steep. Hmm.

    I think that's only for the Radio City Music Hall show, right? It's probably expensive for bands to play that venue so maybe that's why the ticket for that one is more than the other shows. All the other shows seems to be around $25 to $30.

    From Austin to New Orleans with no stop in Houston? Ugh. Still, I might stock up on 5-hour Energy and bolt to NOLA and back. Those weekend dates in Seattle look tempting as well.

    I just noticed a lot of these shows are reserved seating ones. That sucks.

    Oh wow! Spoon and Deerhunter, two of the best rock bands around right now. I'd probably pay to see Deerhunter headline a show, so it's a show I can't wait to attend.

    VERY excited about new dates! I missed the NYE gig in Milwaukee. So I'll probably get to the Minneapolis or Chicago gig......Chicago at night

    Well that was a pain in the ass buying tickets. I'm set for Oakland and the first night in Seattle but there's no way I'm sitting more than 10 rows back on the second night. Surely there has to be some better venues they could've picked that were general admission? :(

    Quick question - I'm trying to get tickets for DC (9:30 club) and they're not listed on the ticket site - are they sold out or just not available yet?

    I think the tour dates on the site are the dates participating in a pre-sale. I'm guessing the Washington DC shows are not having a pre-sale.

    I'm wondering about this myself, given that there's no information on 9:30's website regarding these dates. Here's hoping they make a sales announcement for these tickets soon!

  19. What's up with all of these big venues. It's LAME if you ask me. I'd much rather see them in a more intimate setting.

    Also, why aren't they coming to Oregon??? I hope they schedule a venue in Portland soon...

    Yeah seeing them in smaller venues is great, but you can't hold them back forever. Eventually they were going to get the recognition they deserved.

    I don't really mind the larger venues, it's the SEATING that's the issue. I don't think it's exactly "fair" to get assigned seating and not be able to get up close to the stage and enjoy the show the way you normally would. Radio City is a real stickler for not letting people rush the stage. It kind of kills the excitement/enjoyment factor a bit.

    I agree completely with devilsdishes. Of course I wish they could be playing smaller venues, but I understand they need to play big ones to fit more people, and they're getting more popular, etc. It's the whole assigned seating thing that gets me annoyed too. The last time I saw Spoon from a seated place, it was the Hollywood Bowl when they were opening for Beck. I wasn't too far away, but I wasn't in front and when you're used to being up front...well it's just not the same. Plus scalpers are getting most of these front row seats- have you guys seen the prices some are charging on eBay for the NYC show? Eesh...
